Reworked processing & updating engine
The dictionary engine was reworked from the ground up, with much improved understanding of inflections, word forms and meanings. The new engine allows us to further improve the dictionaries in the future and to update them frequently.
Dictionaries now show word genders. Things like slang expressions etc. are marked as such. There are usage examples for many (non-English) words.
Ready for macOS Ventura
The app was thoroughly modernized and works on macOS Ventura (while still continuing to support older versions down to macOS 10.11).
Improved pronunciation audio
Pronunciation recordings are now volume-normalized, processed to remove noise and faster to play.
Improved dark mode and styling
It was good before. It's better now.
Upgrade to Dictionaries 2
Version 2 is a major upgrade and requires a new license. If you have a Lifetime license or purchased or renewed Dictionaries on or after September 1, 2021, your license was already upgraded for free. Upgrade pricing with 30% discount is available to customers with older licenses.
